I also thought I might point out that I connect with comcast, and I'm wondering if that will pose any problems DLing BTs? Thx to all the earlier info as I have gained some confidence in trying to accomplish the task at hand!

no matter how long it takes to download always up it to another client at least once or be cool maybe 3 times unless your client is a leech (like most of you) and fuck with'um

Nope, none. Have at it.

They tried to "throttle" users torrent downloads but the FCC shot down Comcast and their efforts to limit torrent up and downloading late last year. It has been rumored that Comcast has tried to use other backdoor measures to interfere with the speed and amount of up/downloading of torrents but I believe these rumors are unfounded.

Welcome the world of bit torrents. One thing though, might not be such a good idea to follow shorthoppers advice from the other thread. Limewire is fraught with all sort of troubles/viruses/malware, etc.

DLed my first torrent on 7/7/07 and am still going. Somewhere in the 2 1/2 TB range of data files downloaded. Any major questions just send a message my way. Be glad to help. And yes, always keep your torrents open way after you are done. Sharing is the name of the game.
